From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ABS-CBN Bantay Kalikasan is an organization established by ABS-CBN that promotes awareness in nature and advocates the preservation of the environment.

Bantay Kalikasan (Nature Watch), AFI's environmental arm, started on July 21, 1998. It is a media-based project supported by a multi-sector network of government agencies, private institutions, and non-government organizations. It was launched to serve as a catalyst in addressing the concern over the worsening state of the Philippine environment characterized by air and water pollution, denudation of forests, irresponsible waste disposal and their life-threatening effects. Originally, Bantay Kalikasan started as a radio program in DZMM, addressing environmental problems raised by its listeners.

Bantay Kalikasan committed itself to undertake and catalyze initiatives by maximizing media resources to help ensure an actively protected, adequately rehabilitated, and sustainably developed environment. Its current objectives are as follows:

•  Develop and implement strategic environmental projects;
•  Raise public consciousness on environmental issues and concerns;
•  Provide a venue for publicizing and addressing environmental issues, problems and similar concerns; and 
•  Urge the effective enforcement of relevant environmental policies and laws. 

To date, Bantay Kalikasan has the following projects: Save the La Mesa Watershed Project which consists of the La Mesa Eco-Park and La Mesa Nature Reserve, Bantay Baterya, Bantay Langis, H2Hope, AdvocaSea and the most recent Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig and Magandang Pilipinas Eco Tourism.
